Thomas Jefferson called A Few Days In Athens - "A treat to me of the highest order." Jefferson wrote that "the matter and manner of the dialogue is strictly ancient ... the scenery and portraiture of the interlocutors are of higher finish than anything in that line left us by the ancients; and like Ossian, if not ancient, it is equal to the best morsels of antiquity."
